    The tradition of delighting fans with imaginative treats and promotions during space-themed occasions continues with Krispy Kreme’s Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut, a legacy that traces back to 1969. Krispy Kreme has honored space exploration milestones, from serving Original Glazed doughnuts during NASA’s Apollo 11 Mission to crafting a Mars doughnut for NASA’s Perseverance Rover landing in 2021 and a Strawberry Supermoon doughnut. In 2022, they introduced the Artemis Moon Doughnut to commemorate NASA’s Artemis I flight around the moon.

    “Eclipses are rare and so is our out-of-this-world Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut. Even if you can’t be in the path of totality you can get in the path of these treats, which you will eat in totality. Stop by and get some for you and some to share so you can flex your science side and great taste at the same time,” said Dave Skena, Global Chief Brand Officer for Krispy Kreme.

    Available for a limited time from Friday, April 5 through Monday, April 8, Krispy Kreme’s Total Solar Eclipse Doughnut can be savored in-store or conveniently ordered for pickup or delivery via the Krispy Kreme app and website, while supplies last. Indulge individually or opt for a specialty dozen, featuring six Total Solar Eclipse doughnuts and six beloved Original Glazed doughnuts, ensuring there’s enough to share the eclipse experience with friends and family.

    Oh, you didn’t know: NASA marked a significant milestone in space exploration by honoring John Glenn’s pioneering feat as the first American to partake in a meal beyond Earth’s atmosphere. This momentous occasion saw Glenn indulging in puréed beef infused with vegetables, which he squeezed out from an aluminum tube, among a selection of other delectable offerings. This celebration not only underscored Glenn’s groundbreaking journey but also highlighted the innovative strides taken to make space travel more comfortable and nourishing for astronauts.
